  1. Simple Q: I want to get this filled but am really nervous about the cost. I have United Health Care and just can't find anything on line that tells me what I will be facing.
  2. Well I was taken off of the Veltin - apparently I shouldn't be breaking out THAT long or THAT bad. I was put on Finacea and Differin (.3%). Fingers are crossed.
  3. I'm on Veltin as well. 6-8... Wow. I see my Derm Monday. Hopefully she can bump me up to .04% and give me something to help all the painful inflammation.
  4. I don't see why you couldn't use them together (I use a combo product, Veltin), but I'd take it exactly as your doctor said.
  5. Hi everyone, It seems that most people's IBs go away in about 2 months while on a retinoid but that is not the case for me. I've been on an IB for roughly 4 months now with no end in sight to the breakout. Anyone else experienced this?
  6. So I was put on Veltin (1.2% Clindamycin and .025% Tretinoin) in March for acne on my forehead. I was told to use it all over my face, so that's what I did. I started off slowly and worked up. I'm not up to every other night and am about to boost up to every night. Well, my forehead is now clear, but my cheeks are broken out and HAVE been broken out since April.

  8. Hi everyone! I've only used the Regimen for two days. I know, I have to give it time, but it literally burns my face like fire. I have a pretty high pain tolerance, but it's awful. The AHA is FAB - it stings a bit but then it goes away. However, the BP burns my skin so badly that I sit around fanning my face for hours. Three or four hours later, after initial application, it's still burning just as bad. And the worst part - all this burning and now my face will not stop peeling. It's like I
  9. I have been prescribed Differin in the past. I'll have to ask my doctor to re-issue a prescription.
  10. Hi everyone! I'm new here and I'm a bit frustrated with my skin. I've been on BCP for roughly a year which did AMAZING things for the cystic acne I have and overall breakouts. However, my T-zone refuses to clear up. I have sensitive, delicate combo/dry skin and I've been plauged by blackheads and whiteheads in my T-zone for years, and now that I have a trip in 2 weeks with my employer, I'd like to start looking my best.
